If Cole starts the year on the 3rd line you can count on us rolling all 3 lines evenly during 5 on 5 scenarios. At least one would expect such...
Cole really isn't a good 5 on 4 player, his numbers there for the last 4 years I've looked at are far worse than any of the other top-six forwards. His strength is on 5 on 5 and without Eller that third line is running a bit weak so he might be needed there. No reason he and Kostitsyn can't switch around later.
